With it being no secret that Max Verstappen has hated the Las Vegas GP and the antics that came with it the entire weekend with just hoping to get out of the place as soon as possible, Lewis Hamilton has spoken in favor of the Vegas GP and profited out of it as much as he could.
While Verstappen spoke for the fans and many more who hated the weekend and watched over all the chaos that went down, Hamilton put on his best show and a bar for his Almave drink. The Strip saw a horrible hole open up which left the drivers defending Carlos Sainz for taking the blame for it.
Soon fans were seen leaving the premises after paying $5000 for the F1 tickets which caused many to cause an uproar. However, it seems Hamilton has finally clapped back at the three-time champion.
Although the Red Bull star has won the race and the championship this season by a huge difference, Hamilton decided he needed to give a reply to his arch-nemesis insights.
After a horrible outing for the Mercedes team, Hamilton clapped back at the Dutchman over his comments about “Las Vegas being a show and not an actual race” by replying,
#LasVegasGP 🇺🇸 | Lewis Hamilton post-race: “I wasn’t really expecting the track to be so great. Lots of great overtaking opportunities.”
“All of those that were so negative about the weekend, saying this is all about show bla bla bla. I think Vegas proved them wrong.”
